Dodgers Score: Live Game Updates and Odds vs Brewers on Tuesday, Syndergaard/Lauer, LA Tries to Beat a LHP

The Dodgers look to battle day two of their San Diego hangover and get back in the win column against the Brewers. The bullpen came undone in a 9-3 beatdown in Milwaukee on Monday. It won’t get easier for LA today with the left-hander, Eric Lauer (3-3, 4.40 ERA), on the mound for the Brew Crew — the Dodgers have struggled mightily vs lefties all season, more on that in a second. Adding to the struggles for LA, Noah Syndergaard (1-3, 6.32 ERA) makes his first start in 9 days after working on some mechanical issues with Mark Prior and company.

Here’s a look at the lineup Dave Roberts is sending out against the left-hander.

Dodgers batters are hitting just .193/.294/.376 vs LHP in 2023, continuing a problem against southpaws that has spanned the last handful of seasons. Despite that, Roberts is running out a similar lineup to what he’s been throwing out against lefties over the last couple of weeks. Chris Taylor is in left field and batting clean up. After his 9th inning home run last night, he’s hitting .342 with 7 extra base hits since April 25th.

Trayce Thompson is back out in centerfield as James Outman gets a DH game. Max Muncy, who is still battling through an illness, starts at third base.

Pitching Matchup

Noah Syndergaard makes his 7th start of the season after a one turn respite. He’s struggled since his opening day start, posting a 6.32 ERA altogether over 31.1 innings this season. The right-hander has been working on some mechanical queues in his delivery while at the same time trying to free his mind with the club’s mental skills coach.

Eric Lauer is one of those guys that’s not generally looked at as a great major league pitcher by any means but always finds a way to look like Sandy Koufax when facing the Dodgers. Over 11 previous starts, he’s 7-1 with a 2.37 ERA against LA.
